Birmingham Fashion Week 2012: Part 2

This dress is from Thursday’s Headlining Designer, Annie Griffin.  I love this collection because the fabrics and colors are simply gorgeous.  I wish I could have bought the entire collection right then and there!  I am obsessed with everything Annie Griffin!

It’s been several days since (isn’t there a Barenaked Ladies song that starts out something like that?…) Anyway… It’s been several days since I was at BFW…Now, looking back at all of  the pictures I took and reading all the posts I can find on it…it’s hard to believe that I was actually there! I am still stoked that I was introduced to Karla Simmons, Ph.D. from Auburn University. She informed me about the Project Design Week being held at Auburn University on July 15-20…so hoping that I get to attend this amazing opportunity! Are you interested in attending the Project Design Week? If you are… here is the link that will tell you everything you need to know!

In this blog post, I’m sharing my favorites from Thursday’s show.  It was sooo hard narrowing down the pictures…

Without further ado…

Molly Franks, absolutely a fabulous job!
Adore. What else is there to say!:)
What a precious little black dress modeled by Molly Franks!
Awe… the Annie Griffin girls! You two girls honestly created some pretty awesome things that I am so excited that I got to see in person!
I want to give props to all the hair artists who worked so hard to make every model look fantastic!
This creative Rising Design Star made a dress out of computer wires! And yes, those are working lights at the bottom of the dress! Still amazed by this creation…
I have to give the makeup artists 5 stars…actually…6 stars because they did such a wonderful job! I wish I had a personal makeup artist….
I am still amazed at this dress…
Loved this Rising Design Star’s design! So creative!
This must have been extremely time consuming, but totally worth it! Soooo darling:)
Winner of the BFW Rising Design Star Challenge! That dress was an astounding work of art but….there is no way that dress was comfortable!
MayMay Cates.
Another magnificent design by Travis Mackey!
I am a huge fan of this color! Can I paint everything this color now?…
Dress designed by Holly Griffin Thomas, one of the Rising Design Stars! This dress is so cute and funky, truly a work of art! This dress was modeled by Holly’s sister, Anna Leigh Thomas Arsenault.

Well, there you have it readers…part 2 of the BFW coverage by the Vintage Inspired Passionista herself! I know, it is such an honor;) haha… Anyway… I wanted to let all you fashionistas know that I will be attending the New Orleans Fashion Week March 21-25! I am so pumped for spring break to get here so I can go to NOLA! Stay tuned for next time blog followers for the BIG reveal of what I will be wearing to a special event this Saturday!

  1. Hello darling,

    Thank you for all the positive feedback! I am honored you like my designs. Just to let you know the picture that says “Jessica Elaine” is actually of my model MayMay Cates. Jessica wore it Saturday night. Again thank you for your positve feed back.
